Lawmakers have failed to consider legislation that would allow adults to legally cultivate personal use amounts of marijuana this legislative session.
House Bill 2629, the Adult Home Grow & Criminal Reduction Bill sought to permit adults to grow a limited number of marijuana plants for personal use. Members of the House Committee on Commerce and Gaming failed to bring the legislation to a vote.
“This bill is about consistency, congruency and especially, freedom” said Rep. Brian Blake, who is sponsoring the measure in the House. “Adults in our state can brew their own beer and make their own wine for personal consumption. Just like alcohol, marijuana can be used safely and responsibly, so it makes sense to allow adults to home grow their own if they want to.”
NORML would like to thank those of you who contacted your state representatives and urged their support for this common sense measure.
